Happy Year of the Rooster

Hello, Hetty here again and I have another Rooster card for you. As the New Year is very near, you might need a quick card and i share with you how to do this. I use the Year of the Rooster stamp and a rooster charm. For the background you need an acrylic block, red ink, water and aquarel paper.

This is what you do: take your acryl block and add red ink direct on this block. Than spritz a little water on the ink. Put the block on the table with the inkside towards you. Now take the paper and lay it on top of the block. Rup with your hand on top of the paper, to get all the ink on the paper. Carefully lift the paper off the block and you will see the red ink on the paper. Every time you do this, you will have a different, but quick background. Now take the rooster stamp and with black ink stamp it randomly on the card. Add the sentiment and spritz some black drops to make the background a little more interesting. The brass rooster is added with a piece of foam tape.

On my Craftchaos Blog you can see the technique with a few pictures and another sample. Wishing you all a wonderful celebration and Happy Year of the Rooster!

    That rooster card is fab, Hetty! I’m impressed with your acrylic block background too, I’ve never had much success with those. The rooster charm is a great finishing touch.
